  1. George is it possible for me to download apps n is it a touch screen laptop. Oh and a next thing like how it’s a windows laptop can I use google chrome as my default browser.

    • Vanessa to answer the first part of your question, Once you have a Windows Laptop you have access to a default app store where you have a large selection of free and safe apps to choose from. And to answer your second question yes you can set your default browser to chrome or any other popular browser of your choosing.
